Craft Book Challenge Week 26: Handmade Books and Cards

Here I've made it to Week 26. I'm halfway through my year challenge to use a craft book each week. How ironic then that I could not pick a book for this week. Nothing caught my fancy. I had to literally pull a book at random from my craft book shelf.

I'm actually quite pleased with this week's book choice: Handmade Books and Cards. The book is older, but it delves into paper decoration as well as book construction. I made a hardcover book for my daughter during finals week as a proof of concept that a book could be constructed in one day. She ended up getting her drawings spiral bound (time constraints), but we proved it could be done. I'll show you that book.

I have no idea what's going to come out of this week. I haven't even flipped through the book yet. I was just desperate to get a book chosen. What do you do to get your ideas flowing?
